"What's going on here?" Adorable and beneficial in the garden since they devour insects. Bufo nebulifer has a defined "V" indentation between the eyes.

"A new plant right here? This spot is taken."
I think I know the answer. Her look was one of confusion since she had just been tossed out of a bucket of potting mix toted from the porch about 10 yards away. A long hop back for a toad so I coaxed her into the bucket and returned to the porch.
Happy to be home, she immediately hopped out (before I could even tip the bucket) and took off for the safety of a nearby planter.
A few minutes later, while watering plants along the nearby front walk I spotted another, smaller toad. They are clearly happy in this part of the garden and I am happy to have them.
